Given his popularity on and off the court, it is safe to say that Lonzo has a crazy female fandom. But it seems like Ball has been a one-girl man so far with long-time school sweetheart Denise Garcia.

Lonzo Balls’ girlfriend: Denise Garcia

Denise Reann Garcia is an Instagram influencer. Hailing from the West Covina, a suburb of Los Angeles, Denise was a sporting star in Chino Hills. Her rise to popularity coincided with the fame Lonzo Ball was getting at the time.

A college soccer star, Garcia met with Ball when he was just a freshman. Ever since then, it was a start of a special bond. “Without knowing his name or watching him play, all I cared about was that fact that he caught my eye and had my attention.”

While Zo became an NBA star, Garcia’s popularity also sky-rocketed. As of October 2021, the former colligate soccer star has around 450,000 followers in Instagram. But the duo’s social media isn’t as studded with photos of each other rather features their daughter.
